7. Denver knows how to put the "high" in "Mile High City"

Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, Denver residents get to be pretty open about their favorite pastime. Let's just say that marijuana dispensaries are the new Starbucks. But instead of getting wired, you get weird. Sorry we're too high to think of a better punchline to that joke.

6. You learn to snowboard or G.T.F.O.

Come on, the Rockies are right there. It's practically mandatory you take up some kind of winter sport when you live here. You can pick up a Denver-made Never Summer snowboard at Emage sporting goods store. Then its off to the slopes. Loveland Ski Area is only an hour away, while Keystone & Breckenridge Resort, and Copper Mountain Ski Resort are a mere hour and a half drive. This is where all that microfleece comes in handy. And truth be told, a little of the pot, too.

5. Denver has the best craft beer--if you disagree, keep it to yourself, lest we judge you.

Gee, where in Five Points are we going to drink tonight? If it's craft brewing you're looking for, look no further. Denver's got you covered. First up, swing by The Great Divide Brewing Co. Tap room for a pint of Yeti Imperial Stout, and then head over to Renegade Brewing Co. and grab and icy cold Elevation IPA.
